An international group of inter-disciplinary postdoc researchers advancing
the next generation of integrated Earth System science towards global
sustainability: through World-Earth Systems modeling

*An Earth League Initiative*

The Earth League is setting out to advance the next generation of
integrated Earth System analysis. This is in response to the current urgent
need to deepen our understanding of potential pathways and transformations
within this increasingly turbulent Anthropocene towards future world
development on a resilient and stable planet.

Therefore, we are embarking on a joint state-of-the-art World-Earth Systems
modeling and analysis program, igniting the deeper fusion of biophysical
systems and human dynamics. For this, Earth League invites applicants for 7
postdoc research positions, to be known as Earth-Docs. For further
information on the rationale behind this program, please see here

We appeal for excellent young scientists from different backgrounds in
sustainability research, with the ability to bring powerful contributions
to areas including:

·       Integrated Earth System modeling
·       Global governance and economics for sustainability
·       Sustainable energy, and technological and societal transformations
·       Global equity, human security and human behavior

This initial group of 7 postdoc researchers will be hosted by 5 Earth
League member institutions:

·       Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Germany (1 position)
·       Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University, Sweden (1
·       Centre for Earth System Science, Tsinghua University, China (2
·       Earth system science centre, INPE, Brazil (2 positions)
·       HZG/Climate Service Centre 2.0, Germany (1 position)

The Earth-Docs will form one international team carrying out their research
within the Earth League World-Earth Systems program.

The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) will
function as a collaborative global hub for the Earth-Doc team, gathering
the group of young scientists 1-2 times per year for joint scientific work

Each Earth-Doc will have at least 2 senior supervisors from the group of
leading Earth League scientists leading the overall scientific program.

Applications should include:

·       Cover letter
·       CV
·       1-2 page vision on your perspective of the scientific challenge
within Earth system modeling for global sustainability
·       The names and contact information of two referees
·       Indication of preferred host institution, from those listed above

For those interested in applying to Potsdam Institute for Climate Impacts
Research (PIK), please follow this link
interested in the position hosted at Earth system science centre at INPE
must be aware that funding must be applied for separately, however this
will happen with full support and guidance of INPE.

Applicants should have a doctorate in a related field, and fluent written
and oral skills in English. Attributes should also include strong team
building skills, intellectual leadership, and the ability and enthusiasm to
travel as well as to work within an international network of scholars.

The Earth-Doc positions will start at different times this year, according
to the timeframes of each host institution. Position duration and payments
will also vary according to the conditions offered by the different

We are looking to create a diverse and rich team. Therefore, we encourage
applications from all geographical backgrounds, gender affiliations, as
well as those with disabilities.

Deadline for submission: 1st May 2015.

Please send submissions by email to: earthdoc en the-earth-league.org

For any queries, please contact the Earth League Secretariat using the same
email address.
